the second debate. the moderators so far -- the lives that -- romney and paul ryan both lied the entire debate. jim lehrer allowed them to lie. this young lady cut them off. she was correct to say, excuse me, can you be specific? and to be called out like that, a liar -- supporters cannot accept that. if the next moderator's allow the filibuster by the lying mitt romney, or even of the president goes on to a tangent that is totally false, i think that i would expect -- and is not born to happen because i do not think president obama is a lighter, but mitt romney -- vice- president biden did what i would do. i would laugh at their joke. i have been in the debates. and i know that when i am approached with the truth or with an opinion, now an opinion is different from a life. and the vice-president did not call my lawyer. he interrupted him because he wistful of malarkey. host: that was walter from baltimore. charlotte, n.c.. joelle on our line for democrats -- joel on our line for democrats. host: keep it to the moderator. caller: they are only upset of it doesn't go their way. host: so
